Lingefelt's Birthday Celebration
Lingefelt is turning 94! George's family is throwing him a celebration
on Saturday, February 25th at Rock Springs Baptist Church, 1640

beginning at 6:30 pm. George's family will provide the facility
and music. But, to make this party extra special we need food also.
As most of you know, Mr. George has been an integral part of Troop
465 since it began over 50 years ago. We would like to see our Troop
get involved to help him celebrate his birthday. We were hoping
we could get our families to donate food for his party, not a meal,
just an appetizer or dessert.
you are able to provide food, please bring it to the church between
5:30 pm - 6:00 pm. For anyone wishing to bring food, but cannot
make it to the church, we can have someone at the Scout hut to accept
it from approximately 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm. Please contact Susan Limbaugh
if you plan to bring items to the hut.
let Susan Limbaugh know if you will be able to help, so that we
will know how much food we are collecting. Thank you!
